People tend to put off anything related to estate planning, as it isn't a subject many younger people like to think about. Anyone in Michigan over the age of 18, especially anyone with children, may benefit by preparing and executing a will. Those over 18 may also gain by looking into other vital documents that are better to have and not need rather than not have and need.
When there are children involved, a will is a concrete and vital tool in making sure wishes are adhered to. Even if a couple or parent has an informal agreement about what family members may raise an orphaned minor, having it legally outlined is a must. Without a legal document in these circumstances, surviving family members could find themselves fighting over custody.
